Nothing beats the comfort of a bowl of tomato soup. For many of us, we were raised on the canned version. Well, I’m about to convert you to this homemade creamy tomato soup recipe because once you try it you’ll never look back.
I’ll let you in on a little secret – pureed soups are my favorite way to load up on extra servings of vegetables.
This soup is dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and full of fiber. Kids love it too! If you have a picky eater in the house, just omit the toppings or serve them on the side.
